  1. You know, I’m discovering that there are varying degrees of writer’s block. Some blocks are surface level blocks, easy to get through with some easy motivational times, others are ocean deep and require more expert help. In those cases it’s like pulling up a centuries old ship that had been sunk and became part of the coral.

    Good luck to all of you blocked writers! Thanks for sharing.


    • You are so right, Ollin. Mine are usually (thankfully) shallow. I dread when that changes. I think when you’re writing style is natural, writer’s block doesn’t happen as often. If you get stuck, go back to your own identity. It’s when the character is NOT your natural style that challenges us as writers.

      Thanks for visiting, Ollin.
